"Tis the Season

by Fontaine Family

'Tis the Season of Giving

Today is the day we got to put on our elf hats and
help out Santa with his deliveries! 
Each year we Adopt A Family from Safe Voices
and even though we don't know who they are...
that doesn't stop us from going all out to try to
find just the right thing that will
make this Christmas truly special! 
Having the opportunity to help out
a family who is going through such a rough time
makes us realize how fortunate we are
and brightens our holiday season.

Ho Ho Ho! 
Merry Christmas from The Fontaine Team!

Why You Should List During The Holidays

by Fontaine Family

10 Reasons to List Your Home During the Holidays

1.  People who look for a home during the holidays are more serious buyers.

2.  Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays so you have less competition.

3.  Houses show better when decorated for the holidays.

4.  Buyers are more emotional during the holidays.

5.  Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays.

6.  Many people want to buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.

7.  January is traditionally the month for transfers.  Transferees can't wait until spring to buy.  You must be on the market to capture the market.

8.  You may still restrict showings during your personal family events.

9.  You can sell now, but specify a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year if you so desire.

10.  By selling now, you have an opportunity to buy during the spring, when many houses are on the market.

Bottom Line 
By listing now, you may have fewer actual showings, but more qualified and motivated buyers.

The Reason 
You have less competition, resulting in a quicker sale and better price for you.
